Religion is just an excuse, all those things would've happened without religion as well. The real fault lies with human nature, religion is just used to justify all that destruction and death. I agree with the conclusion though.

"I say that we live up to a world where you avoid being evil not out of fear of supernatural retribution, but out of respect to your fellow human race, a far more shining thing to aspire for, I do daresay. "

I agree with most of this response. I may provide a more detailed one later. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 15:54, 18 March 2009 (EDT)

Now, lets play a small game of imagination. Lets imagine a world completely free of religion, a world where there is no form of supernatural worship in any way whatsoever. Imagine a world where every “faith” never even developed, just think of that world. Imagine a world where the Twin Towers still stood, because the religious extremism that led to those attacks never existed. Imagine a world without the Crusades, because the concept of “Holy Ground” did not exist for the Catholics to begin genocide against the Muslims. I can in fact imagine such a place. It's called Nephelokokkygia or cloud cuckoo land. Alsto003 (talk) 23:26, 3 October 2014 (UTC) Alex
